  • Bearcats promising despite so-so start

    By Aaron Steele, student columnist

    Anderson County Bearcat hoops are off to an odd start this season. When questioning head coach Glen Drury about it, his response to me was “It’s a process.” Frankly, that’s not an arguable point. The same seems to be happening this year with Kentucky’s men's basketball team.

  • Birdwhistell picked to help make Kentucky’s Medicaid program ‘model to the nation’

    By Al Cross
    Kentucky Health News
    FRANKFORT, Ky. – Gov. Matt Bevin said Wednesday that a University of Kentucky health executive and former state health secretary, Mark Birdwhistell, will help him design a Medicaid program that "will be a model to the nation." He said he hopes to know by the middle of 2016 whether his new administration can reach an agreement with federal officials on the shape of the program.

  • Bearcats, Collins battle for tourney position

    The New Year will offer Anderson County a fresh start in boys’ basketball.

    It will do the same for Collins when the Titans host the Bearcats in a major 30th District battle Saturday night in Shelbyville.

    Usually two of the powers in the Eighth Region, both Anderson and Collins dipped below .500 before Christmas. However, both teams had played relatively strong schedules and both are expected to be factors in the 30th District and Eighth Region races by the end of the season. At the Christmas break, all four district teams had losing records.

  • Third quarter dooms Cats in tourney

    BARDSTOWN – Glen Drury picked up the scorebook and simply pointed to the circled “5” indicating Anderson County’s output in the third quarter Monday night.

    The Bearcats had just dropped a 60-53 decision to a very good Boyle County team in the first round of the Nelson County Holiday Classic, held at Nelson County High School. Drury focused on the eight minutes where his team apparently lost its focus.

  • Reflecting on 2015 through memorable quotes we shared

    When the calendar says it is that final week of the year, it’s time for some reflection.

    Oh, we certainly want to look ahead too. With the New Year coming up Friday, it’s a time for a fresh start on many things. But if you don’t know where you have been, you probably won’t know where you are going.

  • Youth wrestlers win tournament


  • Mat Mustangs third in own tourney

    The Anderson County Middle School wrestling team finished third in the Mustang Duals, held Dec. 19 at the school.

    Eventual champion Oldham County defeated the Mustangs in the semifinals, but Anderson recovered to beat Shamrock Wrestling, the feeder program for Louisville Trinity High School, in the third-place match.

    One of the largest duals tournaments in Kentucky saw 20 teams from around the state participate.

    Anderson opened with a win over Madison County, then defeated Fern Creek, Wayne County and Scott County before falling to Oldham.

  • Lady Bearcats drop two at Nelson, set to face regional contenders

    The Anderson County High School girls’ basketball team might have gone into the Christmas holiday on a bit of a sour note as the Lady Bearcats dropped their final two games in the Nelson County Holiday Jam last week.

    Anderson entered the Christmas holiday at 8-3 after opening the season with seven straight wins.

    Henry Clay outlasted the Lady Bearcats, 32-27, in the tournament semifinals as only three Anderson players – Kaci Currens, Sammy Rogers and Alorra Sims – scratched the scorebook. Currens led Anderson with 12 points.
